    What version of Flexi are you running? As of version 7.6.2 Flexi has been able to open a Gerber PLT file.

    If you want to send me the file, I can try and import it and then export it or save it as an .eps or .ai file. Pretty sure Flexi would open either.

    PM me for my email address if interested.

    Have you tried starting up just the production manager and dropping the plt file directly in there?
    I have run into files that will not open in the main Flexi program but will open and print when dropped right into the Production manager, leaving Flexi closed.
    I only have 7.6 so it may not be an option within 7.5.

    I can tell you that whatever existed before 7.6.2 as far as opening PLT files was not what it was after 7.6.2 ... I beta tested and supplied feedback directly to the product engineer. It has some limitations but for the most part it works.

    If you want to send me the file to the email in my signature, I will try to open it.
